In MLB, Cheaters Win

Wednesday, Major League Baseball found the Boston Red Sox cheated in the 2018 season, including the World Series, which the Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. Again, the Red Sox did not receive stiff punishment for the crime.

My feelings about the Houston Astros and the Red Sox are disgust. Sign-stealing is a part of the game, but doing it by electronic means when MLB warned teams “don’t do it” is wrong. Unless MLB can punish more severely, including players, cheating will continue.

If Major League Baseball doesn’t care about cheaters, please reinstate “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and Pete Rose, who only gambled, and put them into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Put players who have used illegal steroids into the Hall of Fame. Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Roger Clemens did not steal signs electronically. They did not know exactly which pitch was coming. Although using an illegal substance to make your bodies stronger and improve your eyesight is wrong and gives you an unfair advantage, in the 1990s, baseball knew many players were using illegal steroids and did nothing.
